“The presidential election campaign started from March 19. The electoral notice boards for propaganda are hung in all polling stations throughout the Republic, as well as the free airtime provided for presidential candidates. The candidates are legally forbidden to violate the rights of each other who use the propagation campaign in equal conditions,” Secretary of the Central Election Commission (CEC) Mikayil Rahimov has told Sechki-2018.az as he commented on the steps to be taken against the violation of presidential candidates’ rights during the campaign.
The CEC Secretary described the cases of spoiling of any candidate’s campaign material, or one candidate’s step against another as unacceptable under the law. Mikayil Rahimov noted that the presidential candidates may also apply to the district election commissions and use the conditions created for the propagation campaign.
